92 E31 850i ignition cables

Hi,

Has anyone ever changed their ignition cables with non oem ones? Are there any non oem cables at all? Paying over 700$ for some cables really hurts...

Email these folks http://www.phoenixmotorsport.co.uk/

They have been making ignition wire sets for the 850's that are supposed to improve on the factory ones while costing less.
Most of what they make is pictured here http://wuffer.net/bc8s/index.php?opt...d=59&Itemid=64

The other aftermarkets sets seem to be of questionable quality.

Whatever you do, stay away from KINGSBOURNE wires - they are CRAP!

Ok, so the used oem cables, did solve the misfiring problem but now i get a loud interference in my radio? Any idea? Maybe the suppressors on a cable have gone faulty?

All sorted out :P

Talking about coincidences. The radio was working fine until i decided to change the ignition cables, seems that the same minute one of the cables that connects both amps decided to bug me. After some time test all the connections it was all sorted out....thankfully.

The 850 is running smooth again...
